Fundies Don’t Like Sarah Palin
Even though she sucks up to them, and even though I hear a lot of fundies praise her, Sarah Palin may not be as popular among fundies as we thought.
The Fundie Research Council recently held its annual “Values” Voter Summit (and by “values”, they mean they value regression to the 12th century). They conducted a straw poll (meaning only those with the brain of the Straw Man from the Wizard of Oz may vote) of members. These are the results:
Notice that Sarah Palin is 5th on that list, and a rather weak 5th at that.
I don’t know enough about Mike Pence to be scared yet, but I think I’d better read up on him. Something tells me I won’t like him.
Huckabee scares me, because he’s smarter the Palin, and probably more dangerous as a result.
Conservative Christians are generally distrustful of those “non-Christian” Mormons, so I’m a bit surprised to see Romney do as well as he did. I guess they don’t care how their anti-liberty agenda gets implemented, just as long as it does.
We all know that Newt Gingrich is a sterling example of the “values” that fundies promote, so why is he on this list at all? Oh, that’s right. It’s “do as I say, not as I do.”
Rick Santorum? Is he even still around? I thought we drove his ass out of town on a rail. I guess like a bad stain on the sheets, you can’t get rid of the Santorum.
Jim DeMint is at least as dangerous as anybody on this list. It’s good to see him polling at only 5%.
The rest of the people on this list are, effectively, down in the noise. It’s not a large sample size, and it was a self-selected subset of fundies, so take this list with your blood pressure medicine.
Their Vice Presidential list is interesting, too:
Sarah Palin polls much higher on this list. These are the scariest results. VP represents her most realistic shot of becoming president. She’ll get in through the back door (which is not the “back door” that most gay-hating Republicans actually use, if you get my drift. I hope they wash the sheets before the santorum sets.).
